Creating a culture and motivation towards innovation


Acquire the methods and tools to use innovation-enhancing factors more appropriately


Creating a culture and motivation towards innovation

The term Innovation Enablers refers to the enabling factors (organisation, skills, network building, etc.) necessary to create a business environment conducive to innovation. Orienting an entire company towards innovation involves more than just carrying out certain research projects aimed at specific working groups. Allowing the company’s innovative potential to flourish on its own merits and know-how is also not possible. Companies become the best because they are able to exploit all the available resources. INDUSTRY 4.0 is often spoken about nowadays but few companies are learning to exploit the true potential inherent in this revolution.

That is why it is necessary to insist on structurally developing the capacity and the enabling factors which lead to innovation, in order to attain real institutional capability to reliably and repeatedly innovate over time, independent of luck or the talent of a single employee and relying instead on a series of organisational behaviours.
